Conflict Minerals Policy
We support efforts to end the human suffering and environmental harm that has been associated with certain mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries, and are committed to meeting all legislative and regulatory requirements that seek to eradicate this suffering.
Tracing the origin and chain of custody of minerals throughout a global supply chain is a complex process, especially for companies such as ESCO that have hundreds of suppliers. However, we are working with our suppliers to develop and implement policies and systems to reduce the risk that minerals in our supply chain come from mines that finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC region. We will evaluate our suppliers on the extent to which they meet these expectations and share our goals.
